You have all be busy with the challenges and many of you have come quite a long way since you first started coming here. We thought it was time for a little friendly competition.

The contest will be about a family moving to the big city after a job change. The twin teens will take advantage of all the possibilities a big city provides as well. You will be decorating three rooms in three rounds in their big city apartment.

How will this work?
We start by building our apartments from the layout provided below. The flat should be a part of a bigger building and should be on at least the 2nd floor. There will be no application round. You will decorate one/two rooms each round.
After each round the judges will score the entries. We will eliminate half of the participants after each round. After round 3 the person with the highest score in that round wins.
The rounds will run from Thursday to Thursday, but the first round will be open longer.
There will be no extensions, if you don't make it, you don't make it.

Who can enter?
Anyone on the forum can enter! Sims 2 or Sims 3.
Staffers may enter, but their scores will not be counted in the final round, so they can not win this.

Feedback
After each round the scores will be posted in the topic and the best half will go on.

You are of course welcome to use Heidy Heidy to ask for feedback in the topic. We will all try to give you feedback on your work.

The Layout
You must build your flat so it fits this layout. The doors and windows needs to be located where they are indicated on the drawing. Your flat have to be a part of a bigger building and be on the second floor or higher up.

If you have Night Life you can find the flat here, it needs to be modified a little bit though. The layout you should use is the one shown above.

The Sims
Meet the Coles:
Fifteen years of line working for Widgets Watsits in Riverview was enough for Alex. The husband and father had enough, enough with line work, enough with widgets, and enough with Riverview – he needed something new. Without much planning, Alex and his wife Kim decided to pack the house up and move to the bright and beautiful Bridgeport, where they and their teen twins, Amelia and James, could live the city life. Of course the dream of big city life was much different than the experience. Alex found a job as a fireman, which he enjoyed, but it left Kim worrying every night.
The twins struggled with school, especially after Amelia accidentally tripped into a trash can in the cafeteria in front of everyone. But then things started to work out, Alex was rewarded for his bravery at the station, Kim baked and sauteed her worries away by cooking, and the teens adjusted too. Amelia took a part time job at the art gallery and started pouring her heart into painting. Her twin, James, found fun by trying to sneak into clubs after curfew and woo ladies with his guitar playing. Bridgeport was the perfect place for the Coles to be.

Alex: Brave, absent minded, family oriented, handy and friendly.
Favourite colour: Light blue
Life time wish: Firefighter Super Hero

Kim: Neurotic, family oriented, natural cook, neat and perfectionist.
Favourite colour: red
Life time wish: Culinary Librarian

Amelia: Absent minded, flirty, clumsy and artistic
Favourite colour: orange

James: Clumsy, virtuoso, hot-headed and artistic
Favourite colour: red

Round 1 – The twins room
Decorate room "A" for the twins.

Take the twins (James & Amelia) personalities and taste into account when you are decorating. They have to share a room, but they would like some privacy as well.

Minimum requirements:
2 beds
2 desks
1 sofa/2 armchairs/2 comfy chairs (so 2 people can sit down comfortably)
1 TV
1 computer/laptop
1 stereo
1 dresser

Style: Scandinavian Modern (make sure to check out the link)

Deadline: 19. May 22.59 GMT

Round 2 – The master bedroom
Decorate room "B" for the parents

Now that the twins are settled mom and dad can spend some time decorating their master bedroom. The two of them visited Japan a few years back (they got some family over there). They were really inspired by the modern Asian interior designs. They like the calm and stylisation of the rooms a lot. So they want to use that style in their bedroom. The want a modern room, not a shrine to traditional Asian design.

Minimum requirements:
1 double bed
1 sofa/2 armchairs/2 comfy chairs (so 2 people can sit down comfortably)
1 dresser

Style: East Asian Modern (make sure to check out the link)

Deadline: 26. May 22.59 GMT - Countdown


Round 3 – The Living Areas
After decorating the bedrooms it has become very clear that the rest of the flat really needs an overhaul as well. Both the kitchen / living room and the bathroom is a bit run down right now and their old furniture does not really fit their stylish new bedrooms. Living in the big city has inspired them to want the living room / kitchen to be inspired by modern New York interior design style, which is fun and striking. They don't really know how they want the bathroom style-wise but it should fit the rest of the flat, so some kind of modern interior would properly be best.
Kim loves to cook, so the kitchen is high on her list of priories. The teens and dad wants the living area to be comfortable and kind of informal. The would like to be able to sit down and eat together, but a breakfast bar would do if there isn't room for a dinning table. The parents have the biggest say in how the common rooms look, but remember the teenagers live there too.

Minimum requirements:
Living room/kitchen:
Room for four for dinner
1 sofa
1 TV
1 stereo/sound system
1 fridge
1 stove
2+ counters
1 sink
trash can/composter

Bathroom:
1 WC
1 shower/tub
1 sink
1 mirror
2 towels

Style: New York Modern (make sure to check out the link)

Deadline: 2. June 22.59 GMT - Countdown

It just have to be part of a bigger building... The layout we used is from a flat in Bridgetown if you have Late Night, but you can build your flat anywhere. It has to be a part of a bigger building (the flat can't be all there is on the lot) and it has to be on at least the 2nd store, so they have a bit of a view.
